Fresh ideas for your wedding flowers.
Personalize Your Petals
According to floral designers, brides are customizing their flowers by incorporating personal mementos and family heirlooms into their bouquets. Attach broaches, handkerchiefs and even small photos to the handle, or intertwine longer items such as rosaries and necklaces into the blooms.
Play With Texture
While classic arrangements often repeat the same flower, contemporary floral designs are all about depth and variety. If it’s the textured look you’re after, try sticking with smaller flowers, which allow you to fit more varieties into one bouquet. For a classic look with a modern twist, use different colored roses to unify an arrangement, and then mix it up with more shapely flowers such as snapdragons, hydrangeas and lilies.
Get Creative With Color
If you are an adventurous bride who wants to make a big statement, bring in some bold colors. To add just the right kick of color, use roses, delphiniums and gerbera daisies.
